PREPARATION

Before starting, you ensure your hands and nails are well cleaned. File your nails if necessary, so that there are no snags. By doing this you prevent damages on the face and risk of infection.

Always work using clean materials (sponges, brushes, spatulas, water bowls) and change the water regularly.

Get the subject to put on any clothes beforehand that have to be put on over the head. Protect your models clothing with a hairdressing cape or a towel.

First degrease and clean the skin you are going to be working on with Grimas Cleansing Lotion. Then dry the skin with a tissue.

To suggest a partially bald head and different hair implant (wig) you place a bald cap on the head.

CLEANSING LOTION = Cleansing Lotion
Long hair: distribute the hair evenly over the head.
To keep the hair together, use a cut panty hose (upper leg part).

Note: do not use hair pins or combs, as they may damage the Bald Cap.

Short hair: shave away hair on the neck, if necessary, make sideburns shorter, and then comb the hair backwards tightly (moisten a little if necessary), and fixate with hairspray.

Note: do not use gel.

PUTTING ON THE BALD CAP

Ball both hands into fists and put them into the Bald Cap, stretching it a little so that you can check it.

BALD CAP = Baldcap
Stand behind the subject and ask them to place their thumbs vertically with the nails against their forehead so that the Bald Cap can catch against them when placed with a front-to-back movement. Ensure that the point at the front is well centred and that there is sufficient space below the hairline for adhesion.
BALD CAP = Baldcap
Arrange the Bald Cap so that it is smooth and tight, covering the head properly without any wrinkles.
BALD CAP = Baldcap
Fold the front edge back and apply an adhesive edge of about 2 cm just below the hairline with Grimas Mastix Extra.

Protect the eyes by closing them and covering them with a tissue. Can cause serious damage to the eyes.

For a natural effect, you follow a possible natural line in the forehead.
Let the adhesive edge go as far as the temples.

MASTIX EXTRA = Mastix Extra
Bring the edge back to the forehead and press gently to distribute the adhesive.
Then fold back the edge again.
Allow to dry for about 15 seconds and then apply to the forehead again: make the Bald Cap fit tight to the head, without wrinkles.

Freeing up the ears

Mark out the ears. A felt-tip pen was used in this example for the sake of clarity. If a Grimas Make-up Pencil for example in a skin tone is used, the result is more subtle and no longer visible later on.
When you finish off the edges with acetone you are also immediately removing the sketch made using the Make-up Pencil.

MAKE-UP PENCIL = Make-up Pencil
When you start cutting the Bald Cap to size, it must be stretched tight. To make sure that the Bald Cap does not tear because of the tension and the cutting, use acetone to melt a hole in the Bald Cap at the point that you are cutting towards.

You should proceed as follows:
Pull the Bald Cap down at an angle to tense it. Dip a cotton bud in acetone (don't work too wet) and melt a small hole in the Bald Cap at precisely the right place: 2 mm below the point where the top of the pinna (the 'shell' of the ear) leaves the head.

Hint: if necessary, you can melt multiple holes along the line for easy cutting.

BALD CAP = Baldcap
Then cut carefully up from the bottom edge vertically to the hole. Now do the other side.

Get the ears out from underneath the Bald Cap.

BALD CAP = Baldcap
Cut the shape of the Bald Cap in the same way alongside the sideburns and make sure there is enough space to attach it. You can always make changes to the edge later using acetone.
BALD CAP = Baldcap
Get the model that will wear the Bald Cap to sit up straight. Now make a glued edge of approximately 2 cm along the sideburns. Let this adhesive edge fit up exactly against the glued edge on the forehead. There must not be a gap between them.
Use the same principle: fold back, apply adhesive, reposition the side edge, press gently and fold back again. Allow to dry for about 15 seconds and then apply along the sideburns again.
BALD CAP = Baldcap
Now go to the back of the head. To make sure that the Bald Cap does not tear, you use acetone to melt a hole in the Bald Cap at the point that you are cutting towards.
BALD CAP = Baldcap
Fold the Bald Cap back.
Apply a glued edge of approximately 2 cm along the hairline of the neck as far as about half-way behind the ears.
BALD CAP = Baldcap
Pull the Bald Cap with some tension over the back of the head, whilst pulling the sides forward. This ensures it fits neatly and is tensioned appropriately.
Fold it open again, allow to dry for 15 seconds and then close the Bald Cap for the last time.
BALD CAP = Baldcap
Note: you finish the edges using cotton buds with acetone. You need 15 to 20 cotton buds for this, because the acetone dissolves the plastic. Don't dip used cotton buds back in the acetone.
Take a cotton bud with acetone and make a small hole on the forehead, in the middle of the adhesive edge.
Cut vertically up to the hole. You start working from this hole with acetone to create a clean transition from the Bald Cap to the skin.
BALD CAP = Baldcap
You proceed as follows: you rub the tip of a cotton bud dipped in acetone horizontally a number of times over the middle of the adhesive edge and then melt it downwards in a vertical motion.

Note: do a little piece at a time, and stay in the middle of the adhesive edge so that you are following the shape of the adhesive edge.

Make a small hole at the middle of the adhesive edge at the back as well; cut up to it and then proceed in the same fashion from the back of the head towards the back of the ears.

Conceal the natural eyebrows with Eyebrow Plastic.
EYEBROW PLASTIC = Eyebrow Plastic
EYEBROW PLASTIC

Grimas Eyebrow Plastic is a transparent wax that is used for covering up eyebrows. The texture adheres to the skin well and remains elastic.

Use the convex rounded side of the Derma Wax Spatula to take the Eyebrow Plastic out of the jar. By scraping it out, you already make the texture a bit flexible.

EYEBROW PLASTIC = Eyebrow Plastic
DERMA WAX SPATULA = Derma Wax Spatula
You then make the wax easier to model by applying it to the ball of your thumb and scraping it off again with the spatula two or three times.
The wax must be flexible but also firm and must definitely not be allowed to get too soft and sticky.
Thin eyebrows: apply Eyebrow Plastic with the convex rounded side of the spatula in the direction of the eyebrow hairs, ensuring that no hairs stick out. Smooth the edges flat so that grease and moisture can not get underneath.

Thick eyebrows: comb the eyebrows against the direction of the hairs with an eyebrow brush. Then use the brush to apply Eyebrow Plastic against the direction of the hairs, after which the brush can be used to smooth the hairs in the natural direction. Eyebrow Plastic can then be applied as per the technique for thin eyebrows.

EYEBROW PLASTIC = Eyebrow Plastic
Smooth the Eyebrow Plastic surface and edges off with your fingertips, using a little bit of Cleansing Cream. Then dab it all over with a clean Make-up Sponge. This gives a matt effect and also adds a skin-structure effect.
Powder the whole with a make-up sponge with Grimas Transparent Powder to matt and fix it; then turn the sponge over and continue dabbing with the clean side until the excess powder has been removed.
CLEANSING CREAM / SKINCARE CREAM = Cleansing Cream
EYEBROW PLASTIC = Eyebrow Plastic
MAKE-UP SPONGES (DISPOSABLE) = Make-up Sponges (disposable)
= Transparent Powder
APPLYING A BASE

Now apply a base using Camouflage Make-up Pure. Apply the make up on top of the Eyebrow Plastic too. Work from the spatula or stick with a dry and clean Make-up Sponge and apply the Camouflage Make-up Pure with a dabbing action. Work from the middle of the Bald Cap outwards toward the edges.
To fix and matt white make-up, you can use white Colour Powder or Transparent Powder.

CAMOUFLAGE MAKE-UP PURE = Camouflage Make-up Pure
EYEBROW PLASTIC = Eyebrow Plastic
MAKE-UP SPONGE = Make-up Sponge
BALD CAP = Baldcap
COLOUR POWDER = Colour powder
= Transparent Powder
Colour Powder can be applied with a Grimas Velour Powder Puff, a Powder Puff or a Powder Rouge Brush. Gently tap the puff or brush on the back of the hand and then apply lightly on top of the make-up. Allow to settle in and remove the excess powder with a Powder-Rouge Brush.
COLOUR POWDER = Colour powder
VELOUR POWDER PUFF = Velour Powder Puff
POWDER PUFF = Powder Puff
BRUSHES POWDER ROUGE = Brushes Powder/Rouge
FINISHING

Use Crème Make-up Pure to draw stripes on top of the light base that are sharply delineated on one side and merge into the make-up on the other side (towards the centre).

CRÈME MAKE-UP PURE = Crème Make-up Pure
If necessary, blur the segments and lines that are to be faded with the fingers or a dry make-up sponge. You do this with a dabbing action, without wiping.
Around the mouth and chin you create black accents to give the illusion of depth. Draw the eyebrows, sideburns and lines under the eyes as well.

Scrape a little black Grimas Eyeshadow/Rouge loose along the edge of the cup using a spatula or the back of a brush. Take it up with a brush that has been moistened with Grimas Cleansing Lotion and mix it on the back of your hand. Now draw the eyebrows and suggest more narrow, slanted eyes by using eyeliner to draw lines slanting upwards. Then extend it the other way, from the inner corner of the eye downwards. Let the line run back towards the corner of the eye, ending at the beginning of the lower eyelash edge.

EYESHADOW/ROUGE = Eyeshadow/Rouge
CLEANSING LOTION = Cleansing Lotion
You draw straight lines preferably with a flat brush, keeping the handle of the brush pointed in the direction of the line. The more quickly you draw the line the straighter it will be, and the more pressure you apply on the brush, the thicker the line becomes.
REMOVING THE PRODUCTS

Removing the Bald Cap
Detach the adhesive edge with a cotton bud soaked in Grimas Mastix Remover. Remove the adhesive and make-up residues with Mastix Remover.

Massage Grimas Multi Remover or Cleansing Cream into the skin and remove with a tissue. Cleanse the skin afterwards with Grimas Cleansing Lotion.

BALD CAP = Baldcap
MASTIX REMOVER = Mastix Remover
MULTI REMOVER = Multi Remover
CLEANSING CREAM / SKINCARE CREAM = Cleansing Cream

CLEARING UP THE MATERIALS

The sponges are disposable so you can throw them away after use. If you do want to reuse them, first rinse them under the tap with some soap or shampoo or wash them in the washing machine (in a net bag or pillow case), set to at least 60°C. You can also wash the (Velour) Powder Puff in the washing machine.

You can clean brushes with water and soap or shampoo. The Powder and Blusher Brush is cleaned like this too. Put the moist hairs of the brushes back into shape by hand after washing. Dry the brushes lying flat on a towel and do not place them upright, since that causes the moisture to run down into the shaft.
